    If you sit and don't move and clear your mind for a long time the true nature of these manly ideas of oneself will become apparent.

    Oh, c'mon John, give it a rest and have some fun would you? On the other hand, the sandpaper thing is way more manly than anything I could do[​IMG]

    Here's a good one - making love to a woman and knowing you (or part of you) are responsible for all her pleasure at that moment.

    You're assuming she's not fantasizing about, say, me at the time... but yeah. [​IMG]

    Wish my long-term injuries were inflicted in a more "manly" way.
    ...
    Now, the ideal account is that I was using my MAD HAX000RRR K3ND0 SK1LLZZZZ!!!!!!!!!1111111! to save civilization from a group of 100 thugs and ruffians at which point I used my legs to block a phone pole someone swung at me. And I then beat the bloody crap out of them with my ankles broken. [​IMG]

    Now for the reality: let's see, my left ankle sprain. Happenned three years ago, ankle naturally significantly weaker even today. Had just started kendo, had only been doing it for maybe a month. Sat in seiza incorrectly (too much weight on the left hand-side). Sprained that bastard so badly that I am in constant danger of rolling my foot. Exciting, eh?
    My right ankle; again during kendo. I think I was, uh, "moving backwards strategically" at a moderate speed and tripped myself on my own hakama! [​IMG] And I have developed some weird form of plantar fascitis on that foot, to boot. (sp?)

    Well, I'd be lying if I said we both didn't enjoy looking at your MySpace pictures while doing it.

    I drive a dump truck. That makes me feel pretty manly sometimes. Especially when I'm smoking and wearing a hard hat while driving the dump truck. I used to drive a forklift, also pretty damn manly.


    The dump truck and cig. are pretty manly.... Selvedge jeans too?

    I finished and submitted my undergrad thesis today, having written it in the span of a month and vomitted out the last 30-35 pages over the past week and a half without doing any drafts. I stayed awake for the last 48 hours before I turned it in, shutting myself inside my dorm and subsisting off of Red Bull and delivery pizza and Chinese food.

    I'm sure it sucks and may likely be ridden with embarassing typos I couldn't catch, but I could care less since I want nothing to do with academia in my career anyway and just wanted it off my back so I can get the hell out of school. I think there's an element of manly indifference to the fact that I put it off to the last month and didn't waste the rest of my prior year worrying about it, just did the busywork when the time came and have now since left it behind me.

    Now my last few weeks of college are going to be the biggest joke ever, and it's awesome.

    Ha... nope. A pair of $20 levi's with a hole in the knee, frayed cuffs, and paint stains on em. Plus a day-glo orange shirt with reflective tape on it.

    You know, if no one has done it yet (I'd be surprised if someone hadn't tried) this would be a great starting point for a Man Summer Camp. Get a place out in the desert (maybe near Vegas), buy a bunch of old "real Tonka" trucks and equipment like that, get some automatic weapons, camping facilities, etc. It would be a popular destination for bachelor parties.


    Automatic weapons, heavy equipment and liquor. Sounds like a great mix to me.[​IMG]

    yeah - last year I had a bitch of a pain in my ankle. turned out to be an infection of the achilies heel. went to the doctor and I couldn't pinpoint what had caused it. so we talk about what my week looks like, and when I tell her about my martial arts class, she says "do you really think that a man of your age should be jumping around and kicking things?". made me feel great.

    That gives me an idea for a poll.... [​IMG]
